This is a guide for the 2023 Latinx Film Series in the Library.

"Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child" In-Person

Join us in the library for a Latinx Heritage Film Series. We will be showing two films, "Mayan Renaissance" for Rigoberta Menchú and "Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child" for Jean-Michel Basquiat. 

  • "Mayan Renaissance"(English with closed captioning in English) October 3, 2023 from 1-2:59pm
  • "Renacimiento de los Mayas" (Spanish with closed captioning in Spanish) October 5, 2023 from 1-2:59pm
  • "Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child" October 10, 2023 from 1-2:33pm

“‘Mayan Renaissance’ tells four thousand years of Mayan history, from the Mayan point of view. This is a story that has never been told.” Mayan Renaissance will be shown on October 3 and we will be showing the same film in Spanish on October 5th.

The second film in our series will be Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child; “Director Tamra Davis pays homage to her friend in this definitive documentary.”
